Prunes

I THINK THAT I SHALL ALWAYS CRAVE

THOSE PRUNES WITH PITS THAT I SHALL SAVE

TO START A COLLECTION OF DIFFERENT SIZES

WITH SOME CONTAINING UNUSUAL SURPRISES

 

SURPRISES THAT MAY INCLUDE A WORM

ALL PETRIFIED IN GLORY….NO WAY TO SQUIRM

OR MIGHT I FIND SOMETHING RARE

THAT I COULD CHERISH AND POSSIBLY WEAR?

 

OH WELL, OH DEAR, OH PRUNES DON’T FEAR

YOUR LEGACY SPEAKS FROM THE REAR

NO MATTER WHAT THEY ALL MAY SAY

 I’LL STILL EAT MY PRUNES, EVERY DAY
